At WWE Clash of Champions, Kofi Kingston will be out to prove he can beat The Viper once and for all when he goes one-on-one with Randy Orton in a highly personal WWE Title rematch on Sunday, Sept. 15 at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte.
Though it seemed Kingston and Orton would settle their rekindled, decade-old rivalry at SummerSlam, a double count-out only fueled Kingston, who unleashed a vicious post-match Kendo stick assault on his challenger in lieu of a satisfying match result. By way of the savage beating, Kofi made it clear that he was not the same person Orton faced 10 years earlier.
Kingston’s resolve may have come from the fact that he understood the remorseless Orton like few others, having experienced his sadistic nature several times over the years. Though Orton is a Superstar with no conscience, Kofi knows the danger of stepping into the ring the 13-time World Champion, and the WWE Champion needed to show that he will not back down no matter what. Still, while a new chapter was written at The Biggest Event of the Summer, the two Superstars were far from done with each other.
